After this, when you choose the Manufacturer, give a new version a name, and click Next, choose a desired cabinet door style, and the system will try to map old items into the corresponding items from the newly selected manufacturer. Not all items can be mapped automatically, and for such cases, you will need to select the appropriate part from another manufacturer yourself by searching it either by part code or description. To proceed, make sure all items are mapped, and then click on the “Save & Continue” button.
